These rules are determined by the scientific fields covered in the journal. They are regulated by the Certificate of State Registration, and quality standards of scientific paper and its presentation adopted in the scientific community.</p> <p>Drawing up the items of the publication ethics policy of the scientific journal <strong>"</strong>Modern Information Technologies in the Sphere of Security and Defence<strong>"</strong> editorial board followed the recommendations of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE, <a href=""></a>) and the experience of foreign professional associations and other Ukrainian and foreign research institutions and publishers.</p> <p>A feature of professional scientific community is the acceptance of the moral code which sets the basic rules of behavior and the responsibilities of the scientific community members before each other and in relation to the public. Such a code is defined by the intention to ensure maximum benefit to the professional community and to limit the actions, which could serve the interests of individuals, as well as to ensure an author's intellectual property rights.</p> <p>In addition to the aforesaid editorial board set the list of ethical standards bellow. It should guide persons (editors, authors and reviewers) involved in the publication of research results in the fields of science considered in the journal.</p> <p><strong>Ethical Obligations of Editors of the Journal:</strong></p> <p>1. All submitted materials are carefully selected and reviewed. An editorial board reserves the right to reject an article or return it as requiring improvement. The author is obliged to improve the article according to the remarks of the reviewers and the editorial board.</p> <p>2. An editor should considerate all manuscripts offered for publication without prejudice, evaluating each on its merits without regard to race, religion, nationality, status, or institutional affiliation of the author(s). An editor may take into account relationships of a manuscript under consideration to others previously offered by the same author(s).</p> <p>3. An editor should consider manuscript submitted for publication without delays.</p> <p>4. The whole responsibility for acceptance or rejection of an article rests with the editor. Responsible and reasonable approach to the duty requires that the editor seek advice from reviewers, Doctor of Science of required specialty, as to the quality and reliability of manuscripts submitted for publication. However, manuscripts may be rejected without external review if considered by the Editors to be inappropriate for the journal.</p> <p>5. The editor and members of the editor’s staff should not disclose any information about a manuscript under consideration to anyone other than those from whom professional advice is sought. After a positive decision has been made about a manuscript, it should be published in the journal and in the website of the journal.</p> <p>6. It is acceptable to spread articles published in the journal or quotations over the Internet with precondition of giving references and links to the primary source. Publication and/or distribution of materials from the journal by third parties or organizations in print and electronic media are prohibited.</p> <p>7. According to the international law of electronic media copyright, copying of materials published in electronic journal in full or in part is not allowed without the prior written permission of author(s) and Editors. In case of use of the published materials in context of other documents, references to the primary source are required.</p> <p>8. An editor should respect the intellectual independence of authors.</p> <p>9. Editorial responsibility and authority for any manuscript authored by an editor and submitted to the editor’s journal should be delegated to other qualified person, such as a member of its Editorial Board.</p> <p>10. If an editor is presented with convincing evidence that the main substance or conclusions of a report published in an editor’s journal are erroneous, the editor should facilitate publication of an appropriate report pointing out the error and, if possible, correcting it. The report may be written by the person who discovered the error or by an original author.</p> <p>11. An author may request that the editor not use certain reviewers in consideration of a manuscript. However, the editor may decide to use one or more of these reviewers, if the editor feels their opinions are important in the fair consideration of a manuscript. This might be the case, for example, when a manuscript seriously disagrees with the previous work of a potential reviewer.</p> <p><strong>Ethical Obligations of Authors:</strong></p> <p>1. Main duty of an author is to present an accurate account of the research performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.</p> <p>2. Whole responsibility for content of articles and for the fact of publication rests with author(s). Editors do not bear responsibility for probable damage caused by publication of a manuscript to authors or third parties. Editors have the right to withdraw the article already published in case somebody's rights or generally accepted norms appear violated. Editors inform author(s) of the article, persons who gave recommendations and representatives of organization, where the research was held, about the fact of withdrawal.</p> <p>3. An author should be aware that journal space is a limited resource and should use it wisely and economically.</p> <p>4. A primary research report should contain sufficient detail and reference to public sources of information to permit the author’s peers to repeat the work. When requested, the authors should make a reasonable effort to provide samples of unusual materials unavailable elsewhere, with appropriate material transfer agreements to restrict the field of use of the materials so as to protect the legitimate interests of the authors.</p> <p>5. An author should cite those publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work and that will guide the reader quickly to the earlier work that is essential for understanding the present investigation. Except in a review, citation of work that will not be referred to in the reported research should be minimized. An author is obligated to perform a literature search to find, and then cite, the original publications that describe closely related work. For critical materials used in the work, proper citation to sources should also be made when these were supplied by a non author.</p> <p>6. Any unusual hazards appearing during an investigation should be clearly identified in a manuscript reporting the work.</p> <p>7. Fragmentation of research reports should be avoided. A scientist who has done extensive work on a system or group of related systems should organize publication so that each report gives a well-rounded account of a particular aspect of the general study.</p> <p>8. In submitting a manuscript for publication, an author should inform the editor of related manuscripts that the author has under editorial consideration or in press. Copies of those manuscripts should be supplied to the editor, and the relationships of such manuscripts to the one submitted should be indicated.</p> <p>9. It is improper for an author to submit manuscripts describing essentially the same research to more than one journal of primary publication, unless it is a resubmission of a manuscript rejected for or withdrawn from publication. It is generally permissible to submit a manuscript for a full paper expanding on a previously published brief preliminary account (a “communication” or “letter”) of the same work. However, at the time of submission, the editor should be made aware of the earlier communication, and the preliminary communication should be cited in the manuscript.</p> <p>10. An author should identify the source of all information quoted or offered, except that which is common knowledge. Information obtained privately, as in conversation, correspondence, or discussion with third parties, should not be used or reported in the author’s work without explicit permission from the investigator with whom the information originated. Information obtained in the course of confidential services, such as refereeing manuscripts or grant applications, should be treated similarly.</p> <p>11. An experimental or theoretical study may sometimes justify criticism, even severe criticism, of the work of another scientist. When appropriate, such criticism may be offered in published papers. However, in no case is personal criticism considered to be appropriate.</p> <p>12. The co-authors of a paper should be all those persons who have made significant scientific contributions to the work reported and who share responsibility and accountability for the results. Other contributions should be indicated in a footnote or an “Acknowledgments” section. An administrative relationship to the investigation does not of itself qualify a person for co-authorship (but occasionally it may be appropriate to acknowledge major administrative assistance). Deceased persons who meet the criterion for inclusion as co-authors should be so included, with a footnote reporting date of death. No fictitious name should be listed as an author or coauthor. The author who submits a manuscript for publication accepts the responsibility of having included as co-authors all persons appropriate and none inappropriate. The submitting author should have sent each living co-author a draft copy of the manuscript and have obtained the co-author’s assent to co-authorship of it.</p> <p>13. The authors should reveal to the editor and to the readers of the journal any potential and/or relevant competing financial or other interest that might be affected by publication of the results contained in the authors’ manuscript. All authors should not have any personal significant financial interest and employment or other relationship with entities that have a financial or other interest which can affect the results described by the manuscript.</p> <p><strong>Ethical Obligations of Reviewers of Manuscripts:</strong></p> <p>1. As the reviewing of manuscripts is an essential step in the publication process, and therefore in the operation of the scientific method, every scientist has an obligation to do a fair share of reviewing.</p> <p>2. A chosen reviewer who feels inadequately qualified to judge the research reported in a manuscript should return it promptly to the editor.</p> <p>3. A reviewer of a manuscript should judge objectively the quality of the manuscript, of its experimental and theoretical work, of its interpretations and its exposition, with due regard to the maintenance of high scientific and literary standards. A reviewer should respect the intellectual independence of the authors.</p> <p>4. A reviewer should be sensitive to the appearance of a conflict of interest when the manuscript under review is closely related to the reviewer’s work in progress or published. If in doubt, the reviewer should return the manuscript promptly without review, advising the editor of the conflict of interest.</p> <p>5. A reviewer should not evaluate a manuscript authored or co-authored by a person with whom the reviewer has a personal or professional connection if the relationship would bias judgment of the manuscript.</p> <p>6. A reviewer should treat a manuscript sent for review as a confidential document. It should neither be shown to nor discussed with others except, in special cases, to persons from whom specific advice may be sought; in that event, the identities of those consulted should be disclosed to the editor.</p> <p>7. Reviewers should explain and support their judgments adequately so that editors and authors may understand the basis of their comments. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by the relevant citation. Unsupported assertions by reviewers (or by authors in rebuttal) are of little value and should be avoided.</p> <p>8. A reviewer should be alert to failure of authors to cite relevant work by other scientists, bearing in mind that complaints that the reviewer’s own research was insufficiently cited may seem self-serving. A reviewer should call to the editor’s attention any substantial similarity between the manuscript under consideration and any published paper and any manuscript submitted concurrently to another journal.</p> <p>9. A reviewer should act promptly, submitting a report in a timely manner.</p> <p>10. Reviewers should not use or disclose unpublished information, arguments, or interpretations contained in a manuscript under consideration, except with the consent of the author. If this information indicates that some of the reviewer’s work is unlikely to be profitable, the reviewer, however, could ethically discontinue the work.</p> </div> <div id="custom-2"> <h3>Indexing</h3> <p><strong>The journal is indexed in the</strong> <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">scientometric databases</span>:</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href=";hl=uk">Google Academy</a></li> <li><a href=",p24782666,3.html">Index Copernicus</a></li> <li><a href="">The Journals Impact Factor</a></li> </ul> <p><strong>The journal is presented in the following <span style="text-decoration: underline;">databases</span>:</strong></p> <ul> <li><a href=";type=all&amp;oaboost=1&amp;ling=1&amp;name=&amp;thes=&amp;refid=dcresen&amp;newsearch=1">Bielefeld Academic Search Engine</a></li> <li><a href=";issn=23117249&amp;uid=r4e09b">Research Bible</a></li> <li><a href=";q=Modern+Information+Technologies+in+the+Sphere+of+Security+and+Defence">WorldCat</a></li> </ul> <p><strong>The journal is added to the following</strong> <strong><span style="text-decoration: underline;">libraries:</span></strong></p> <ul> <li><a href=";I21DBN=UJRN&amp;P21DBN=UJRN&amp;S21STN=1&amp;S21REF=10&amp;S21FMT=juu_all&amp;C21COM=S&amp;S21CNR=20&amp;S21P01=0&amp;S21P02=0&amp;S21P03=PREF=&amp;S21COLORTERMS=0&amp;S21STR=sitsbo">Vernadsky National Library of Ukraine</a></li> </ul> </div> <div id="custom-3"> <h3>Peer review process</h3> <p>The editorial board practices double-blind peer review.

Particular attention in our time, given the experience of environmental protection, is growing need to improve methods of prevention and neutralization of negative impacts on telecommunications networks, which in our time are constantly improving and occur in forms that previously did not exist. The number of cases of negative effects on telecommunications networks that harm not only the physical structure of the network, but also logical, which, in turn, requires consideration of assessing the increase in survivability not only in terms of structural survivability, but also in terms of software performance of heterogeneous traffic management. Additionally, you need to pay attention to the security of connections and the transmission of information on them.</em></p> <p><em>The purpose of this article is to analyze the most relevant methods and techniques to ensure and increase the required level of survivability and narrow the scope of research to further optimize or find a better combination of methods or create improved methods to improve efficiency in solving problems related to ensuring the required level of telecommunications networks. and systems.</em></p> <p><em>In the study of survivability, it is possible to use a number of different theoretical approaches and, thus, the use of different methods of analysis: game-theoretic, probabilistic, deterministic, graph-analytical. Probabilistic and deterministic approaches are the most developed for technical purposes, and therefore are promising for improvement and optimization.</em></p> Andrii Zinchenko , Mykola Masesov , Ivan Pantas Copyright (c) 2021 Андрій Зінченко, Микола Масесов , Іван Пантась Thu, 30 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0300 Problems statement of rational distribution of miscellaneous ways of infiormation warfarw of enemy by transport plarform elements of national telecommunication network for ways definition of its radio-electronic suppression <p><em>Interference protection of the communication system is a relevant and important area of research, the methodology for assessing the impact of radio and electromagnetic suppression on it is currently well developed and known. The national telecommunication network as a set of communication systems and networks in the context of a hybrid war against Ukraine needs to improve ways to protect it from the destructive influence of the enemy, which is equipped with the latest radio suppression and electromagnetic. Unprotected national telecommunication network will not be able to perform its main function, namely the circulation (transmission, reception, creation, processing, storage) and protection of national information resources, providing secure electronic communications, providing a range of modern secure information and communication (multiservice) services in the interests of government in peacetime, in a state of emergency and in a special period, and which is a dual-purpose network (system) using part of its resources to provide services, including cyber security, to other consumers. Qualitative development of methods and techniques to ensure noise immunity of national telecommunication network elements is impossible without predicting possible scenarios of enemy action and the noise situation that may arise.</em></p> <p><em>The current moment of time is characterized by fundamental changes in the conditions of application of the transport platform of the national telecommunication network in the conditions of conducting a hybrid war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine.

This is confirmed by the intensification of the use of distance learning systems in the conditions of sanitary and epidemiological restrictions and the need for acute cost savings. Analysis of existing distance learning systems of higher military educational institutions has shown that their structure is not perfect and requires unification of the process of their construction in order to ensure the effectiveness of military training. The implementation of this process requires the use of theoretical and applied tools to build the structure of the expert-educational system of military purpose in the system of distance learning of higher military educational institutions. The main reason for this fact was the irrational construction of the structure of the expert-educational system of military purpose in the system of distance learning of higher military educational institutions.</em></p> <p><em>Based on this, the purpose of this work is to form a typical scientifically sound structure of the expert-educational system of military purpose of a higher military educational institution to ensure the provision of quality modern educational services using information technology. The following methods are used in the work: analysis - during the study of the peculiarities of the structure of distance learning systems of higher military educational institutions, taking into account the experience of the leading countries of the world; formalization - for a meaningful description of the process of functioning of the distance learning system; taxonomy - for multidimensional comparative analysis of the structures of the distance learning system of a higher military educational institution; synthesis - to form a typical structure of the expert training system for military purposes. A method for determining the appropriate option for building the structure of the expert-educational system of military purpose in the system of distance learning of higher military educational institution, based on the procedures of multidimensional comparative analysis of indicators of the quality of functioning of indicators. Based on the results of the application of the methodology, a standard structure of the expert-educational system of military purpose of the distance learning system of a higher military educational institution was developed and recommendations were made on the organization of the distance learning system of a higher military educational institution. The use of a rational structure of the expert training system for military purposes makes it possible to solve complex and problematic situations in the process of training military specialists in higher military bulk institutions. This fact eliminates the limitations in the practice of building the structure of the expert training system for military purposes and creates a new opportunity to cover a wider range of factors that affect the quality of work. The application of this technique allows the distance learning system of a higher military educational institution to predict the results of joint operation of the respective subsystems of the distance learning system, taking into account their contribution to the overall result.</em></p> Spartak Нohonіants , Evgeny Rudenko Copyright (c) 2021 Спартак Гогонянц , Євген Руденко Thu, 30 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0300 Comparative analysis of methods of psychological influence on the military servants of the armed forces of Ukraine in the conditions of the lunch operation <p><em>The article presents a comparative analysis of methods of psychological influence on servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the conditions of a joint operation using the information infrastructure of both Ukraine and the Russian Federation.

This work is a continuation of the study on the preliminary description of "The Future of the Security Environment 2030", expanding the scientific scope for the implementation of urgent public policy measures to neutralize threats to cybersecurity of organizations. The need for the article is due to the rational choice and application of measures aimed at ensuring the cyber security of information infrastructure facilities of organizations. It is established that in practice it is possible to estimate efficiency of performance of the actions directed on maintenance of cyber security through the following indicators (probabilities): risk of cyber security, cybersecurity, functional operability of system of object of critical information infrastructure, cyberstability. To apply the principle of continuity in the article under the improved cybersecurity ontology, the indicator (probability) of cybersecurity risk is selected. The methodology for assessing the risk of cybersecurity of critical information infrastructure of organizations is based on determining the probability of cyber attacks, as well as the levels of their damage. The methodology includes the following stages: the stage of developing a system of indicators for evaluating the effectiveness of activities; the stage of planning the procedures for collecting initial data to assess the effectiveness of the activities; the stage of calculating the value of the performance indicator; stage of interpretation of the value of the indicator of efficiency of performance of the actions directed on maintenance of cybersecurity of objects of a critical information infrastructure of the organizations. The initial values for the calculation of cybersecurity are obtained based on the results of the audit of critical information infrastructure of organizations. Statistical methods, expert estimates, or elements of decision theory should be used to calculate cyber attack probability values as well as the level of possible damage. The scientific novelty of the study is that for the first time a method of evaluating the effectiveness of cybersecurity measures on the indicator (probability) of cybersecurity risk is proposed, which will complement the methodology of planning cybersecurity measures of critical information infrastructure of organizations.</p> Lesja Kozubtsova , Yuri Khlaponin , Igor Kozubtsov Copyright (c) 2021 Леся Козубцова , Юрій Хлапонін , Ігор Козубцов Thu, 30 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0300 The mathematical model of manned and unmanned teaming combat formation <p><em>To implement automatic control of joint aviation groups combat formations, it is necessary to create a system of the mathematical models of combat formations functioning stages, as well as means of implementing this system, including control and integration procedures.

The content of research task provides to use of a complete nonlinear model of flight dynamics without dividing into longitudinal, lateral and vertical motion, with the taken assumptions.</em></p> <p><em>Determination of the relative position of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles in combat formation will allow to describe their joint relative movement, which forms the features of the combat formation control system, and the selected coordinate system relative to the loyal wing aircraft will give advantages in solving the control problem.</em></p> Leonid Artyushin , Anatoliy Lobanov , Volodymyr Herasymenko Copyright (c) 2021 Леонід Артюшин, Анатолій Лобанов , Володимир Герасименко Thu, 30 Sep 2021 00:00:00 +0300
